duffy london: the swinging chair

duffy london has developed a divergent aesthetic eating experience, creating a room within a room with chairs that float around the table. constructed using a steel frame and wooden table top, the surface is suspended over the ground making vacuuming a breeze. a GEO lampshade and eight hanging seats are incorporated to sway playfully.

  • Noo! That was my idea. I have some sketches of the same idea that are almost 10 years old. Schade…

    the Turk says:
  • Nice idea. Would it work for meetings? With clients?

  • I’m picturing a lot of spilt cuppas

    dbkii says:
  • Daff London more like it. Thanks for injecting humor into the office.

    mArkW says:
  • What’s the point? Makes a tried and tested product harder to use, can only sit in one position, getting yourself/things to the table becomes a duck and weave nightmare, can’t move it, can’t add a chair. If the only point is that no-one sits astride a table leg, surely that’s what pedestal legs are for? And it’s not even particularly nice looking… Breathe!

    SJS says:
  • put at outdoor will be more suitable.
